Often cloaked in morning fog, Chatham, Massachusetts forms the ragged elbow of Cape Cod.

Encompassing a mere 16 square miles of dry ground, Chatham is a decidedly maritime place of pristine beaches, wild barrier islands, tidal shoals, fleeting sandbars, circular coves and miles of saltwater inlets.

Incorporated in 1712, Chatham remains remarkably old-fashioned, despite a well-deserved reputation for shopping. Chic boutiques reside in quaint storefronts along its winding Main Street lined with historic inns, white-steepled churches, varied eateries, and art galleries. A visit to the busy commercial fishing pier reveals the thriving fishing village that exists beneath Chatham’s stylish façade.

Chatham has a beauty that is unsurpassed. Surrounded on three sides by water, it has expansive and magnificent beaches, abundant marine wildlife, and a community committed to preserving these natural resources for future generations.
